SOURCE: 2000 grand caravan won't stay running when I stop

When you try to start it back up, have you tried very slightly pressing on the accelerator and trying to start it? If it does start, but dies as soon as you let up on the pedal, dollars to donuts the IAC (idle air control) passageway is blocked or the IAC motor is bad (should throw out a check engine light though).

SOURCE: Dodge nitro wont start or turn over. The battery

Is this an intermitting problem only occure during dry and cold weather?
Behind the ignition key lock there is a module call Wireless Control Module (WCM). When this module is zap by static eletricity build up during cold weather (via the key). It will hang just like you computer.
As a test please please touch the key to a metal object to discharge the static on the key before insert it into the ignition.
If the problem stop complete then you can take it to the Dodge dealer the arrange service on the Wireless Control Module (WCM) or wire for better grounding.

2007 dodge caliber has full power to all electronics. The engine light stays on and when you turn the car to start nothing. Turning the key does not even deam the lights like the starter is getting no


Sounds like the solenoid on the starter is not getting any power, check the small wire connection on the starter to see if there is power in the start position, if not you have an ignition switch problem or an open circuit between the ignition switch and starter solenoid... if you do have power in the crank position then you have a bad starter.

Why won't my 2007 Kia sorento crank but won't start


Spray a shot of starting fluid or carb cleaner into the air cleaner to see if it fires off when you crank the engine. If it indeed does, then you have a fuel supply problem. If it doesn't then then the problem is with the spark/ignition.

Just a long-shot here, but verify that there is gas in the tank. Maybe you are simply out of gas!

2007 Dodge Nitro 3.7 engine turn key but will not start. like not getting gas could this be a fuel pump problem.tapped on tank then nitro started


Would you not be better off just checking
fuel pressure at the motor with a gauge,since
for some reason the pump runs when you tap
on the fuel tank

Hard to start, no fuel to carb


If you take the fuel line off at the carb and crank the engine, does the pump push fuel out of the line ?

I have an issue with a 87 toyota pick up carburetor. Sometimes it doesnt want to start and sometimes it does a friend told me its that diaphram on the front of the carb with the 3 bolts but he could not...


Okay, your freind may be right, that part is called the accelerator pump, it is used for starting the truck, when you pump the gas to start it this pumps a few squirts of gas into the carb. what concerns me is that you hold the gas pedal to the floor to start it, most of the time an internal leaking carb floods the engine and holding the pedal down will let it start, a quick test would be to use a carb cleaner spray and before trying to start the truck hit the gas pedal and see if inside from the top of the carb look and see if you see a squirt of gas spray out, you will need some one to push the gas pedal or you can do it at the carb, if it squirts gas then the accelerator pump may be good and carb may be leaking and need rebuilding but if it doesnt squirt then its bad and then i want you to spray the carb cleaner into the carb and try to start the truck and if its due to the accel pump then after you spray into carb the truck should fire up and run without having to hold the pedal to the floor, if thats the case then replace accel pump if it still doesnt fire until you hold gas down then crab needs rebuilding . good day. hope this is helpful.

Check your fuses. Make sure the battery is good and the battery terminals are clean and the wires have no tears. Make sure your engine is getting gas. Spray gas or engine starter in the carb. If it starts for a second, it is a fuel problem. Either fuel pump, fuel pump fuse or relay, or clogged fuel filter. If this all checks out, you need to start looking at spark plugs, wires, distributor, cap, rotor. Check your timing belt and make sure it is not broke. It could be a cam sensor or crank sensor as well.

My 1993 Chevy K1500 will not turn over


"Trying to start" is turning over, also called cranking.

remove the fuel line from the carb, disable the ignition, point the fuel line into a can or jar, then turn the engine over.

If no fuel come out, you have a fuel delivery problem.

If fuel comes out, re-attach, look down the throat of the carburetor, operate the throttle, and see if any fuel squirts out.

If not, the float might be hung up.

If fuel squirts, fuel cannot get into the air stream from the float chamber. Time for a carb rebuild.

I have to use starter fluid to get my truck running and than when running it will die in idle and not restart without adding more starter fluid? what can i do?


It sounds like it's not getting fuel. Are you in a cold climate? The gas line could be frozen. You can check the fuel pump by disconnecting the gas line at the carb, you may want to put a length of hose on the line and catch the gas in a coffee can. Then have someone crank the engine while you watch to see if gas squirts out of the line. I wouldn't use too much starting fluid, you can damage your engine, pour a little gas in the carb instead. Also, on a truck of that age the gas line could have a hole rusted in it between the tank and the fuel pump. If that's the case the pump will not pull the gas out of the tank it will draw air instead. It could be the fuel pump itself. If you have a good stream of gas to the carb then the problem is in the carb. It could be the needle valve is stuck shut, take a screwdriver and lightly tap on the carb, that will sometimes jar the needle loose. If you have gas to the carb it could also be clogged jet inside the carb. I you hold the choke partialy closed will it stay running then?
